Spiritual Solutions to Material Problems

image001

We are always surrounded by different types of problems, be it severe weather conditions, disturbances caused by other people or those that reside just in our minds. Why does it happen? Should we try to retaliate and remove all the arising problems or to tolerate whatever happens to us? Or is there another way?

We want to hear your thoughts, and we want to share the Krishna perspective. Here’s what you need to know:

Date: Monday, March 2
Time: 7pm
Place: Student Centre, Room TBD
Cost: $5 for returning guests, FREE for newcomers ($15 for membership)
As always, veggie snacks and mantra meditation will be part of the event. See you soon!

Art of Happiness – Feb 23rd, 2015

Art of Happiness

happiness_by_wint3r88-300x225

There is so much in this world today to feel sad about.  Just a few days ago, our whole city grieved the loss of a beautiful 3 year old boy.  The reality is, everyone you know – everyone – is going through something. Be it as a community or as individuals, happiness tends to appear and disappear – especially when we define happiness by “things”.  One thing is for sure – there is so much that is not in our control.

So what does it take to be (and stay!) happy?

We want to hear your thoughts, and we want to share the Krishna perspective. Here’s what you need to know:
Date: Monday, February 23
Time: 7pm
Place: Student Centre, Room 315C
Cost: $5 for returning guests, FREE for newcomers ($15 for membership)
As always, veggie snacks and mantra meditation will be part of the event. See you soon!

Especially now, with exams coming up, we all need to take the time to de-stress, and to have some peace of mind.

The Krishna Club is hosting a Mantra Meditation workshop TODAY – Monday, December 1st at 7pm. Please join us for an amazing evening of mantra meditation, some philosophical discussion and some amazing vegetarian snacks!
